“Huntsman” Director To Adapt “Naja” Comic

Thunder Road Productions, Entertainment 360, and Nickel City are partnering on a film adaptation of Jean-David Morvan’s acclaimed French graphic novel “Naja”.

The story centers on a beautiful assassin whose nerves are unable to register pain. Her mercenary ways get upended after she finds herself targeted by contract killers.

“The Huntsman: Winter’s War” helmer Cedric Nicolas-Troyan will direct from a script by J.P. Davis (“The Neighbor”).

The story is said to be in the vein of action hits such as Jaume Collet-Serra’s “Unknown,” Robert Schwentke’s “Red,” and Phillip Noyce’s “Salt.”
